Booked ahead of our visit as it's usually busy. Food was really fresh and fantastically displayed. The food was mid range and very authentic

Good atmosphere and a nice place to sit, the usual good presentation and carved vegetables one is used to at thai restaurants, but as a good amateur chef, who prides himself on a broad range of flavours, what we got here today was basically glorified chicken nuggets, the same base sauces, in completely different dishes, and some rubbery deep fried...

Went here for a family lunch. The food and service was amazing. The lunch menu is excellent value for money and left me wanting to revisit.

Having found only an hours parking we were looking for a quick lunch. Saw someone being served and went in. A two course lunch costs just under £9! So weren't expecting much. We ordered and were pleasantly surprised by the starter - I had a chicken satay. The sauce appeared to have been made with freshly ground nuts, The mains... More

We booked a table for 10 of us a month prior for my mothers birthday. On arrival we got seated at a nice table to accommodate us all. 5mins later got told that wasn't our table and ours would be ready in 5mins. Ok no problem we can wait but could we get wine whilst we wait? "Yes straight away"... More

I visited with a friend who was over from China. We had a great meal in a good atmosphere. Afterwards my friend, who is used to authentic Asian food, complimented me on the choice of restaurant. Definitely recommend thailand No1 to anyone. Very helpful staff, with a friendly vibe.

This is only the third Thai restaurant but it is by far the best. Our two family friends have visited Thailand a couple of times and stated it is the best Thai, that they have had in the UK.

I have eaten here twice and have always been impressed by the standard of food. The first time I ate here was march 2016 for my birthday and was quite a large group. The waitresses were so polite and caring and even helped us pick dishes to suit our tastes. The food arrived and it was excellent quality. The second... More

Very busy restaurant and lots of choices. We chose a lovely starter. One main was recommended by waitress and one was self chosen. The recommended dish came on a plate but looked unappetising as grey noodle appearance. The other dish came in a foil but not on a dish. We just thought it was so badly presented - and difficult...
